>>> hello. you're watching "newsline." i'm shery ahn. a white house official says the obama administration is handling an attack at the boston marathon as an act of terror. two bombs went off just before the finish line. at least three people were killed. one of them was an 8-year-old boy. more than 100 others were wounded. the first bomb knocked back runners 30 meters from the finish. then another explosion hit people a short distance away. emergency services rushed to the scene. there was no word on the motive or on who may have been responsible. investigators are working to find out whether the attack was carried out by a terrorist group from inside or outside the country. the explosions have revived memories of the september 11th terror attacks. authorities have tightened security in cities around the country, and they may review measures to keep americans safe. nhk world's reporter has more. >> reporter: this was the 117th running of the boston marathon. the world's oldest annual sporting event. more than 23,000 runners took part. several recounted the horror. >> i lite
obama and adding to the song "yes, we can: voices of a grassroots movement," she has well sung the national anthem at the national championship football game and as well she has given a lot of contributions to american music. she is a supporter of music education for our children, the mother of a daughter and, yes, a prominent american. but i think if we could say the most about yolanda adams is that she never stops evangelizing and seeking to help those who are hopeless and in despair. she brings joy to those who seek it and believes that everyone is a child of god. i'm grateful to know yolanda adams and to claim her as a constituent of the great city of houston and the great state of texas. but most of all, she's an american who is a believer and understands the value of america's freedom to be able to worship. she continues to soldier on to save souls and we're delighted to have been able to have her bless us this morning. mr. speaker, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the chair will entertain five further requests for one-minute speeches on each side of the aisle. the

examine. the third emerged during the last ten years of president obama's first term. over this period, the president, as we remember, vividly, i'm sure, faced relentless pressure from benjamin netanyahurc wi conress and wi the poe eny i this pressure forced the president into humiliating retreats from positions on a settlement freeze, on the potential borders of a palestinian state and urgent need of a state staked out first two years in office. as anybody's who's followed this conflict knows, these were positions previously taken by succession of the u.s. president, but this president was obliged to abandon them. it was not palestine on which he focused almost interly in the first two years in office, but the question of iran's nuclear program, benjamin netanyahu's preferred subject, in exchange ever since. the climb down was complete, and i argue that was seen, yet again, in the bulk of the speech therntly in jerusalem. s writing on the subject, and, aain, the corrupt language played a crucial role. for decades, the repeated man tray of a peace process served to obscure reality. thi

more on the reaction from washington, rich edson is live at the white house. president obama was briefed on the situation this morning, the situation room as it is called is active. rich: it is quite active and has been this morning and president obama started a meeting with the vice president, it lasted an hour. we have subsequent meetings here, secretary of state john kerry, secretary of defense shuts hegel, director of intelligence james clapper and others at the white house. however senior administration officials stress that is for previously scheduled meeting of national security principals, so nothing really specifically to do, nor was unscheduled specifically because of the events in boston, that was earlier this morning. news from capitol hill according to bret baier of fox news saying officials briefed lawmakers on capitol hill telling them they really want to get this second suspect alive find out perhaps if there are any more people involved, find out whether they have any training overseas or if they were radicalized in the united states or overseas and that has
to question in relation to the boston marathon bombings. all this as president obama went to that city today to help begin the healing. scott cohn has the latest from that city. scott? >> michelle, we are, indeed, about two hours away from this long-awaited news conference. we've had an official news blackout for two days now. so we should find out what the authorities have been working on the last couple of days. some actual official information about that. potentially, a picture or pictures of the people they want to talk to and what they've learned from all of those video images. and we know that there were cell phone cameras that people have turned in and all the surveillance cameras, like the one in the lord and taylor store, just across the street from the second blast. and also, at least two others that were operated by the boston athletic association at the finish line, and those could be very high-quality images, because those were high-definition cameras. so if they caught something, that could be crucial. also, there are the fragments that they've picked up of the explosive device
with this individual who they have on video. kelly. >> scott, we'll leave it there for now. we know president obama is visiting the area. >>> in the meantime, commodity prices are selling off. the sell-off i should say continues. it's mostly copper today, though. and we are certainly off the lows. in fact, something of a rebound shaping up now with gold up better than 1%. crude participating, as well. brent and nymex there both remaining below if you want to call them key psychological levels of $109 a barrel respectively. we've seen miners down significantly in some cases this morning. coming off the lows of the session. how do you play the commodities space? what other opportunities might the u.s. offer in particular here? darren joins me from yorkville capital. welcome. you're here to talk infrastructure, but the conference is about infrastructure, but what you're talking about, really, are some of the opportunities that the u.s. now offers, given a lot of the big changes we've recently seen when it comes to shale gas. >> absolutely. i will start out with two questions for you today. what's the
. so the tension is going to focus on the obama administration and following this. we saw during the presidential election campaign mitt romney continually criticized the president being soft on terrorism inspect.. >> and the benghazi incident where it seemed they -- responding to the threat sfp. >> the obama administration was reluctant to use the word terrorism and link it with al qaeda. we saw that a little bit last week, a day before the word "terrorist" was used. this is the line the republicans will use against the president, that he's soft on terror. we're already seeing senior republicans accusing the fbi of dropping the ball on this one, senator lindsay graham and senior members of the house. >> are they justified? is there any way of knowing how many threats like this come into the u.s. on a daily, even hourly basis, and whether in the grand scheme of thing this one ought to have raised the flags? >> i'm not privy to the particular piece of intelligence on this. i imagine obviously they would have thousands of these and things on an annual basis. lindsey graham has said
bad. it's a black guy for the obama administration, congress and the faa. this is going to come back and haunt washington in a major way. connell: you said it would be disastrous for the administration. why? >> well, i think ultimately the jury understands there are always ways to cut spending. it would make the obama administration appear as though it is making six. there has to be some other way to reduce expenditures that do not impact flight times and everything. do not think this looks good for congress or the obama administration. connell: most people believe that it is the big four medicare and the fence that would really hit the budget and that is where we would really have to cut back. we do that, there will be political fallout from everything. they like their social security. they like their better. >> yes. i think so. the real problem is government overspent. we also have a lack of growth. if you have strong economic growth, you would not have these problems of revenue shortfalls that come into spending. ultimately, this is pretty basic. there is a lot of pork in the budg
, president obama vowed to bring anyone responsible to justice. >> we will find out who did this and we will hold them accountable. >> counterterrorism officials tell nbc news that multiple explosive devices were found at the scene. security remains tight in and around boston. residents being told to expect a continued heightened law enforcement presence as the city tries to come to grips with a violent attack in the heart of boston. and that was katie davis there with that report. now london's metropolitan police are reviewing security plans for this sunday's marathon after the explosion in boston. the minister told bbc the best way to show solidarity with boston is to continue the race as the french president has stepped up security around public buildings in this country and raised the threat level to red. >>> speaking earlier, it was said the long lasting impact of terrorist attacks are low. >> research into terrorist incidents over many, many years, their economic impact, their direct economic impact tends to be very, very small, indeed. a lot of good research done on this in israe

passed the finish line. president obama has called for a moment of silence for the victims of the boston marathon bombings next hour at 2:50 p.m. eastern. exactly a week after the first bomb exploded. let's get you back to melissa and lori. melissa: thank you so much. fred chairman ben bernanke skipping the annual jackson hole meeting due to a schedule conflict. that news is already causing rampant speculation. this is a big deal. the fed chairman has been there 25 years. they use the of that to signal policy changes. what do you think is going on? >> i think again, chairman bernanke is opening the door that if in fact he is not re- appointed and i think the market expected before the announcement that he would not seek reappointment, they knew person would have a clean slate to work from. there've been not think that he would say in august that someone would have to change. i think a lot of discussion is that policy will change sometime in 2014. i think it makes it easier for the new person in not having to overturn policy. melissa: not going and not saying anything almost has the same
administration. he could pull it off. if obama nearly tried, it could produce a million jobs in the oil and gas industry. that's not even including the ancillary small businesses or the factory jobs that we moved here from other countries to benefit from our cheaper energy costs. but here's the rub. in order to achieve energy independence within president obama's time in office, the president would have to embrace natural gas as a surface fuel, the way they do in other countries with bountiful gas reserves. he has the ability to order government automobiles, trucks to convert to natural gas. that would then foster a huge job-creating infrastructure and make the importation of oil from diesel fuel oneua all our itsntan irrelevance. ver, ithe president did that h environmental base would be furious. so instead, he says, he favors all sorts of energy. hey, that's the same thing as doing nothing. he needs to say nat g our fuel. we're going to use it to clean up our skies and also become energy independent. sound impossible? listen. i'm not talking about giving this industry one red cent. unlike the
of them critically. at the white house, president obama vowed it will be a swift and thorough search for whoever planted those devices. >> we will find out who did this. we will find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> scott cohen is in boston this morning and he will join us in just a moment with the latest. but first, before we do, why don't we get the market aes reaction to all of this. u.s. equity markets are coming off their worst session of the year. in fact, the dow ended at its lows of the day after concern about what was happening in boston. all dow 30 components ended in the red. after the so-called fear of gauge, the vix index was spotted at more than 40%. and the futures this morning after these declines, you'll see there are green arrows today, making up the ground loss yesterday. right now, the dow is up by 55 points, s&p is up by 5.5. gold is the major stoep story yesterday because it was down over 6%. by the end of the day, it had fallen to two-yee lows. the metal fell by as much as 2% tod
of global warming the unusual photograph of president obama and governor right before the election. in the united states there's a large contingent of climate change doubters. what do you say to that part of the tows persuade them that climate change is real? >> would be take a look at me. i'm the picture of obama and governor chris christie. [laughter] because according to the ground rules of u.s. presidential campaigns, such an embrace three days before election day was an absolute taboo. and talk to the people new jersey or new york that had their homes destroyed and their communities destroyed due to the extreme weather events. look up on the map side, the report of china in january or february. one example, just to give you a visual image is the melting of the arctic sea ice in my part of the world. the consequence -- [inaudible] so whether we call it climate change or not, that's a political concept, which i know has positive or negative connotations, but the ice melting is a reality. and the consequences of the ice melting in my part of the world is extreme weather in united

complement president obama's request and reflect the undisputable fact that statehood won the november referendum. puerto rico stands in a far different place today than it did six months ago. an historic referendum was held. the president responded to the results and congress now has the responsibility to act. those who seek the equality and progress for puerto rico are on the forward march while those who support the same old status quote are in retreat would drive the debate, while they merely react to the debate. and in the end mindful that the arc of history's long bends the justice, i am confident we will prevail. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from california, ms. lee, for ive minutes. ms. lee: thank you, mr. speaker. let me first send my thoughts and prayers to the city of boston, families and friends and all those touched by yesterday's horrific tragedy. an incredible strength on full display in the streets of boston when untold numbers of people, the police, firefighters, volunteers, r
surgery at four boston hospitals. meanwhile, president obama has left no question that the boston marathon bombing was an act of terrorism. the fbi is it evidence response team processing a scene along with the alcohol, tobacco, firearms, and state and local agencies looking for evidence and coming through the debris for any clues that might lead to the capture of those responsible for the carnage. >> this morning the fbi along with boston pd, massachusetts state police, and atf, officially began its forensic evans recovery effort at the site. their goal was to recover physical items related to the blast. those items have been recovered and are being sent to the fbi's laboratory in quantico, virginia lou: the fbi has confirmed there are no plans a responsibility and that the range of suspects and motives remains wide open. authorities are asking anyone with photographs or video near the scene of the explosions to take that evidence to the fbi for examination. the critically important part in the investigation focuses on the components used to make the two bombs and the device or devices us
. president obama will travel to boston for a memorial service on thursday. the u.s. senate has shut its mail facility for the next couple days after authorities intercepted a letter sent to mississippi republican roger wicker. it was laced with the poison ricin. the letter was post marked from tennessee but had no return address. >>> here in london we are watching the funeral procession for the former british prime minister margaret thatcher. that funeral is due to begin in just about an hour's time at st. paul's cathedral. just outside our studios in london. ross westgate is not with me because he's outside of the cathedral. it looks as though they nearly have arrived. they still have an hour left to go. >> the hearse which you saw creeping behind the church there is just about a half mile away from st. paul's cathedral. it also pretty much marks the spot where the west end becomes the city of london or the city of london that's under the control of the corporation of the city of london. what will happen there is that the hearse will stop and lady thatcher's body and the coffin will be tran
up nothing and he's not considered a suspect at this point. yesterday, president obama was direct in his characterization of the bombings. >> this was a heinous and cowardly act and given what we now know about what took place, the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror. we also know this. the american people refuse to be terrorized because what the world saw yesterday in the aftermath of the explosions were stories of heroism and kindness and generosity and love. exhausted runners who kept reasoning to the nearest hospital to give blood and some stayed to tend to the wounded and turning off their clothes to make tourniquets and the men and women who are still treating the wounded at some of the best hospitals in the world. so if you want to know who we are, what america is, how we respond to evil, that's it. selflessly, compassionately, unaffirmative. >> the death toll stands at three. more than 170 people injured. 71 of them still hospitalized and the injuries are -- we are looking at pictures
think you get more foot traffic under obama care and my analyst has a favorable rating on the company and you take it on a stock-specific basis. >> are you excited by earnings season, jeff? >> not yet. this is the real onslaught. last week was really light on the earnings front and we'll have a better peg on that after the end of this week. >> for sure. >> jeff, nice to see you. on cnbc. >> from the markets to the growing world of etfs there is 1.5 trillion under management in the u.s. alone within the etf landscape and as etfs keep gaining ground they might make their way into your portfolio and bob pis any is here with his brand new etf portfolio tracker. bob? >> and i'm very proud of that, carl. we've spoken about exchange-traded funds and the role they might play in their portfolio and we might take this to another level and we'll show you how to use etfs to build a retirement portfolio so we brought in six independent etf experts including five financial advisers that use etfs exclusively to build three retirement portfolios that we are rolling out today. the site, retirement.cnb
is the fbi looking at right now? what's most important from your standpoint? >> well, obama met with his security advisers today, and their biggest concern is that it is a foreign threat, that it's not too lone wolfs in the united states that took this under their own, just decided to do it themselves. so what the fbi will be looking at is phone records, e-mail records. they'll be looking at any communications, travel records that had to do with these guys going back and possibly training at a camp in northern africa. the most important thing is the communication records, if they've made phone calls, connecting them to other people that may have been involved in encouraging this act or training them to do this particular act, that's what the fbi's going to be looking for going forward. >> and we don't have anymore information on that right now. we know, though, that the older brother, who is dead, did leave the country for six months. he's been living in america since 2007, but left for six months, and investigators are trying to zero in on whether or not he got terrorism training. are y
ameritrade. >>> here's what's happening. president obama will be traveling to texas later this week where he will attend a memorial service from last week's explosion at a fertilizer plant that left 14 people dead and 200 injured. world health officials say there is no evidence that the new bird flu strain in china is spreading from person to person. the latest figures show 105 people are sick, 21 have died. gas prices are down. up 11 cents per gallon according to the survey. back to "hardball." >>> welcome back to "hardball." the tsarnaev brothers, still an unfolding puzzle for all of us. what exactly motivated these two brothers? we're learning more every day. one brother in particular, tamerlan, became increasingly radicalized over the last several years. we know now that the russian government expressed concern about him back in 2011. they warned the fbi he was a follower of radical islam. the fbi's investigation never turned up anything significant. tsarnaev traveled to the troubled region of dagestan for six months. it's where his parents live. it's a hub of jihadist recruitment genera
that there had been, in fact, explosions at the white house and that barack obama was injured in those explosions. that fake and erroneous tweet went out at about 1:07 p.m. and shortly thereafter, at about 1:16 p.m., the associated press reporter at the white house had the chance to make a little news of her own. that's because the white house briefing was coincidentally scheduled at that time and the associated press traditionally gets to ask the first question. in this case, it was ap reporter julie pace who had a chance to clear up some of the confusion arou surrounding this incident. >> i want to say at the top that it appears as though ap's twitter account has been hacked, so anything that was just sent out about any incident at the white house is absolutely false and we'll be putting out something today shortly to clarify if that hasn't happened already. >> and the president is fine. i was just with him. >> and that is not something you see every day. the white house press secretary having to reassure reporters in the briefing room that the president is fine. but, clearly, here, guys, one o
. and with all the challenges our veterans face, i was pleased that president obama's budget request included a proposal for new transition assistance program that would help our veterans adjust to civilian life. i won't ask you now because i know there are many people who have questions, but i would hope that you could share with us the key components of the new transition assistance program and if you could describe how educational opportunities will be incorporated, what changes will be made to strengthen job search skills and job placement? my time may be up, so if you can just -- i don't know, mr. chairman, if you'd like secretary hagel just to share that. it's a concern for so many of us in our communities. >> if i might just make a very brief response, mr. chairman, if it's appropriate. and then i will provide details for the record for all the members. this is what i would say. hen i came to this job and i said very clearly i had priorities like anyone who is taking on a new job. certainly my first priority is the defense of this country and that's what the president and the congress
involvement in setting the interest of the letters to president obama and senator roger wicker as well as one to a mississippi judge. curtis is in detention and preliminary hearing began on friday and continues today. >> investigators and taxes have not determined a cause of the explosion that killed 14 people including 10 first responders and a fertilizer plant in west texas. investigators say they pinpointed where the blast originated. the mpeg damaged or destroyed dozens of homes and businesses leaving hundreds of people homeless and in need of help. authorities have also released 91 tapes that captured the initial panic after the fire and massive blast. >> there was some type of explosion and our house, all of the windows are completely blocked and. the walls, part of it is blown off. >>, down and take a deep breath. we are aware of the situation and we are sending people out there as soon as we can. >> city leaders allowed some residents to return to their homes are the weekend but they still face strict curfews. fire officials will hold a memorial service at baylor university on thursda
today and is mourning the death of one of its police officers. we can also tell you president obama was briefed overnight. on the series of events by lisa moniker, assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism. again, going back importantly to the details, what we do know about these suspects, which we can tell you from our very own pete williams is that they are in their early 20s, they've been in the u.s. about a year, and they have some military experience. that's all we feel comfortable reporting at this point. so, again, massachusetts institute of technology classes are canceled. the mbta transit service, which serves the greater boston area, including of course a lot of major financial firms is shut down on this friday. markets, though, shrugging it off or i should say not seeing any broad fallout. we're seeing a rally shape up in u.s. futures. we're seeing rallies across global markets. sovereign debt is performing well. here is a look at the latest on the dow, the nasdaq and the s&p. hire is a look, as well, as european markets. u.s.

to speak is governor deval patrick as well as president obama who will speak at the end of the service and will bring those remarks to you live. as you know in any sort of in terms of healing it, the key is willing a will to heal. that is very much apparent here in boston. now onto the investigation, as carl said two individuals being sought by authorities on camera, videos can be waptured of these individuals around the time of the bombing, but authorities are also saying that the pictures of those individuals have not been released. so pictures are not the men that authorities are looking for. but there were multiple images that captured the explosion and the time leading up to it. that's what authorities are looking at frame by frame by frame. not just cell phone video, but surveillance video. we talked about the lord & taylor camera directly across the street from the second bombing. there were two other cameras at least that were supplied by a company called access communications. those cameras were high definition cameras. so these could be very high quality images, and we expect
